Ground Water Suveys and Development Agency, Pune | Systematic Hydrogeological Survey

Systematic Hydrogeological Survey



A detailed and systematic study of hydrogeological condition at village level scale i.e. 1:10000 is done by the department. The scheme is continuing since 1973. The survey comprises of dug well inventory, geological mapping, aquifer performance test to evaluate ground water regime. Surface geology and winter & summer water level maps are prepared. A report comprising general hydrogeological condition of the village area is generated.

Under this scheme an area of 1, 76,125 Sq. Km. has been covered and hydrogeological map in respect of 25,182 villages have been prepared. The maps are useful for sitting dug wells for individual farmer, water supply scheme, artificial recharge structures, water conservation structures etc.
